Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed Nicklas Bendtner is set to see action in the Capital One Cup.

The Dane last played for the Gunners in their 2-0 Premier League defeat by Liverpool in August 2011 but is likely to feature against the side he joined eight years ago in the third-round match at West Bromwich Albion.

"We have a Capital One Cup game at West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday and I will rotate the team, of course. Nicklas Bendtner has a chance to be involved," Wenger said in an email to Arsenal fans on Monday.
